First of all, the front bumper looks like a good fit, but would be better if you stuck a grill in there, maybe foglights to make it look more... complete?

Get the sideskirts painted (that's my next step on my car).

And the pics are a bit dark, but if you raise the brightness/contrast, they should be better looking.

Nonetheless, sweet ti man.

PS- After my 318ti badge started cracking and the chrome on it looked like crap, i too the 318 part off of it too- I had the shadow from the glue just like you do. I clay washed it, buffed it A LOT, and viola! It's gone.

Question

Quick question: What is up with your rims? Are they just all black and that why we can't see them? Just black hubs? I'm confused.

Other than that, your ti looks clean.

Looks good man. Once you put some mesh in that bumper it will look even better.

Most auto parts/accessories stores sell mesh. I used to have that exact same bumper on my ti and I liked the look of it, but I always thought that it needed an underpanel to finish it off properly. Before I switched back to the e36 m3 look, I was planning to modify the OEM m3 underpanel to fit onto that bumper. You should look into that, Iím pretty sure that it can be done.
